In the last show of the year, NSRnews reports in the aftermath of the successful Commons vote to increase tuition fees to a maximum of £9000 a year, as well as the conclusion of the Newcastle University Occupation of the Fine Arts building.
If trebled fees weren't enough to be worried about, the student loans company is still improving at a disappointing rate according to a group of MPs. Charlotte Irving reports before asking students on campus about the problems they've faced. NSRnews then speaks to third year James Fairfield whose fee loan was not paid, resulting in threats of exclusion.
And James Sheerin speaks to students about ethnic diversity at Newcastle University, following the news that 21 of Oxford University's 38 colleges accepted no black students last year.
